For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Hotel novelties

We're studying good and bad hotel practises to that we know what's on offer ... you may have read a little about the Well House Manor project already on "The Horse's Mouth", and although it will be neither a hotel nor a B&B we can learn plenty from establishments of both types - especially those that are trying innovative ideas.

There's a vending machine here in the lobby that's the vending machine to out-trump all vending machines - it has a big screen that you can go through menus, takes credit cards, and offers products from a packet of crisps and drinks through to toiletries to bluetooth (wireless) headsets and even iPods. I did notice a lack of condoms ... I guess because all the products are on show in a public area and they would raise too many questions in the minds of the inquisitive young.

I'm posting from the hotel room. Just open the laptop, and it's on broadband that's included in the room price which I have to say I feel is good value - about 65 quid for the double. There's also a wired network point on the desk which we could have used an an alternative.

The bed is adjustable for firmness / softness - and adjustable separately for both sides. Not a big fuss to me (as I can sleep anywhere) but I know that Lisa appreciates it ... and I suspect that many others do too.

Have you ever showered standing in the bath and found that the shower curtain sticks to you? The shower curtain here is on an arced rail so that the ends naturally drop into the bath, but the centre of the curtain is held well out to give the showering person as much additional room as possible. And the toilet's set at an odd angle ... I haven't worked out a "why" for that one yet.

Isn't it interesting how .... as you start to get involved in a new venture ... you start seeing things with different eyes!

Lisa Ellis:Oh, there were condoms, too! I was going to point them out but my son was right next to me.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
